Bao

In Disney•Pixar’s BAO, an aging Chinese mom suffering from empty nest syndrome gets another chance at motherhood when one of her dumplings springs to life as a lively, giggly dumpling boy. Mom excitedly welcomes this new bundle of joy into her life, but Dumpling starts growing up fast, and Mom must come to the bittersweet revelation that nothing stays cute and small forever.

Animal Behaviour

Dealing with what comes naturally isn’t easy, especially for animals.

Weekends
